Today and maybe for the next couple of days I’m going to look at one word. In our society we often have a word which has its own unique meaning but we can overlook or forget the DEEPER significance.
C O M F O R T
Animals surely see it from one perspective – Personal comfort for them can be paramount.
Perhaps not encouraged but surely pleasurable when obtained.
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
Thought to ponder.
If we are to truly COMFORT SOMEONE IN THIS DAY.
Should it be more than a hug, a cuddle, a smile a cheery word? – yet these on their own are transforming in someone else’s life.
No my thought to ponder is this. In the Bible it states – God said, ‘Comfort you, my people.’
WHAT IS THE FULL MEANING OF THIS AMAZING WORD COMFORT?
How much more than a cuddle is that!
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

Faye, one of my most favorite verses brought me “comfort” all the way to Israel and back on my first long distance, way to far to turn around and go home, eleven days…and His Word was faithful!
“As one who his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; you shall be comforted in Jerusalem. You shall see, and your heart shall rejoice…”Isaiah 66:13 – Comfort…His faithful promises to me:) blessings, denise
